AMW Reviews: K-Palette 1 Day Lash Perm Long Curl Mascara Waterproof

Good morning Friday!  The week has been great and weather has been wonderful.  Today, I will be sharing another mascara review as I'm always on the quest for great mascaras!  I have a good list of my top mascaras on top of my head but there's always room for changes!  Change will always be good, especially if this change could transform my short, sparse, non-existent lashes into something VAVAVOOM!  *winks*.   
Today, the spotlight goes to K-Palette's newest 1 Day lash perm Long Curl Mascara Waterproof in BLACK!

Simple matte red packaging, looks like any ordinary mascara!
K-Palette says ---
  • Lengthening effects!  No clumpy lashes! - Pullulan, a lengthening ingredient, gives you long and defined lashes that don't clump at all.
  • Film-type mascara with easy removal! - It's easily removed with lukewarm water without hurting your delicate skin or lashes.
  • Ideal long lasting curls! - Curl-keep-polymer keeps lashes curled perfectly for longer hours!
  • Added with 4 beauty essences! - Comes with "beauty essences" to care for lashes while creating impressive curl and length. (Pantenol, Hydrolyze Silk, Red Algae Essence and Swertia Herb)
Ingredients: (please click to enlarge)

AMW says ---
  • Brush length and size is perfect for my eye shape or most eye shapes.
  • Film type mascara so lashes look healthy and shiny.
  • The curve of the mascara wand, with shorter bristles on the sides, makes it easy to reach the root of the lashes to the tips.
  • Curl stayed the whole day or until removal. (if you curled correctly.)
  • No scent.
  • No allergic reactions.
  • Doesn't clump.
  • No flaking or smudging for the whole day.
  • Waterproof formula but easy to remove with regular makeup remover, tried it with lukewarm water and both works!
  • The added with 4 beauty essences! Who doesn't like extra care for our lashes?
  • If you're looking for wet, super dark black mascara, this isn't for you as the effect of K-Palette's 1 Day Lash Perm Long Curl mascara is on the natural side.
  • Does give volume, but not too much! (read tip below on how to achieve volume and length)
Waterproof mascara that doesn't dry up your lashes or create the "crunchy" feel.  Lengthens and maintains the curl of your lashes.  Easy to remove.

  • Though the name says Lash Perm Long Curl Mascara, I highly suggest users to curl lashes well prior to usage of this mascara.
  • I find the best way to maintain the curl of your lashes for the whole day is to apply 3 coats of mascara MAX!
  • Apply mascara using vertical and horizontal strokes, practice and get the best result!
  • If you like applying mascara using the tip of the wand, keep in mind that this area tends to clump so make sure to remove excess formula on tube!
  • To achieve both volume and length, I know this is a tedious task but I enjoy using 2 types of mascara!  1 for volume and another for length, it is a bit tricky to apply so practice on both mascaras and see which combination works best!
Will I repurchase?
To whom do I recommend this to?
Natural-looking mascara users who are looking for lengthening mascara without clumping + mascara that can help maintain the curl for the whole day!

Packaging of K-Palette's 1 Day Lash Perm
Long Curl Mascara Black Waterproof

English description and ingredients list at the back.

A closer look on mascara wand.
The tip includes the shorter side of bristles; at the center is a nice curve to sweep lashes easily.  I find this mascara wand is a perfect length for most eye shapes.

AMW Application Technique
Using the curvier part of the mascara wand, I gently wiggle it starting from roots to tip. I apply coats after coats, maximum of 3-4 coats and I don't see any signs of clumping.

Before and After Shots

Front View - my lashes look more define, definitely a bit longer and the curl is there!  The volume isn't as obvious.

Side View - sorry for the bad angle of before shot, but my lashes definitely looks longer and the curl was maintained until the end of the day before makeup removal.

Top View - See the length and the ZERO clumping? 

Have you found a perfect mascara for you that doesn't clump?  
So far, the K-Palette 1 Day Lash Perm doesn't only make your curl stays the whole day but I love the fact that it doesn't clump my lashes at all!  Seldom can I apply 3-4 coats of mascara without signs of clumping!
